In this age of instant, digital communications, the Fridley Police want to make sure we are using every resource at our disposal to keep neighborhoods safe and connected. We are taking the next step in that effort.
What is Nextdoor.com?
This is a social network specifically designed for neighborhoods, and an excellent platform for police and other safety officials to communicate directly with residents.
What does it cost?
Nothing! It is free for both residents and the Police Department.
Why should I sign up?
Currently, crime alerts are notices are sent from the Police to neighborhood block captains by phone call, flyer or email. Then the captains contact neighbors. This takes time. Using Nextdoor allows for instant, two-way communication. It will improve citywide and neighbor-to-neighbor communications and help all of us build safer communities.
Is it safe/private?
Nextdoor was specifically designed to make neighbors feel comfortable sharing information with one another. All members must verify that they live within the neighborhood. Information shared on Nextdoor is password-protected and cannot be accessed by those outside the neighborhood or found on search engines. Neighborhoods establish and self-manage their own Nextdoor websites and the Police Department will not be able to access residents’ websites, contact information, or content, but will be able to post safety tips, crime alerts and other important information to Nextdoor websites within the city.
How do I sign up?
Please join your neighbors and the Fridley Police Department in building a stronger, safer Fridley today. Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit www.nextdoor.com and enter their address.
Unfortunately, "friends" often try harder to make kids who say "no" to drugs, alcohol and tobacco feel like outcasts. Home testing kits have emerged that protect privacy and provide kids with a socially acceptable excuse: "My parents test me."
"The ability of parents to test their children for drug use provides them with a powerful tool in detecting dangerous conduct on the part of their teens. Until now, this was information available only through police or health care providers. For parents to be able to hold their kids accountable through this in-home private testing process is a unique and powerful means to enhancing health and safety," says Donovan W. Abbott, Director of Public Safety of Fridley.
Employers use testing to rid the workplace of substance abuse. Schools, police, community leaders and parents can now work together to ensure safer schools and homes. Kids can use it to prove their trustworthiness to their parents and dissolve unwanted pressure from peers.
Private and confidential vouchers for test kits are available electronically by visiting testmyteen.com.
Answers to frequently asked questions about home-based substance abuse testing are also available at the site.
